If every student collects just 10 Box Tops then Atkinson receives over $500! Clipping Box Tops is an easy way for you to help our school buy what it needs. Any time you purchase participating products (General Mills, Betty Crocker, Yoplait, Green Giant, Kleenex, Ziplock and Hefty to name some), clip the pink Box Tops off the packaging and turn them into the office. Attach them to a Box Top Buck to be eligible for prizes. Every Box Top counts! For a complete list of participating products, visit:

Welcome to the 2016-2017 school year. This is our third year together and as Atkinson’s principal I feel honored to engage in such meaningful and engaging work. I love our students, teachers, and families and strive to reach our vision. “Atkinson is a welcoming community that CELEBRATES diversity, INSPIRES confidence, and EMPOWERS children to THRIVE”.
The Atkinson community has a strong history of helping children maximize their potential. We are committed to engaging the whole child. We value the relationships we build with parents and we hope to collaborate with you in empowering your child to optimize opportunities, love challenge, inquire and show curiosity, learn from mistakes and celebrate learning. Whether you are dropping your child for the first day of kindergarten or you are a veteran Atkinson parent, the start of the school year is always filled with emotion and excitement. We want all of our students to be happy, successful, and to thrive. We hope that you find the experiences at Atkinson enriching and rewarding.
Thank you for trusting us with this great responsibility. It is truly an honor!
Dear Portland Public Schools Community,
I accepted the role of Interim Superintendent of Portland Public Schools (PPS) at a challenging moment in time. During my first month on the job, I initiated an assessment of the programmatic and system priorities identified by the Board of Education for the 2016-17 school year. After these priorities were established, a number of additional priorities emerged that also require attention:
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Fall into Wellness Fest
8:30 AM - 3:00 PM Book Fair
8:30 AM - 4:30 PM Book Fair
8:45 AM Parent Coffee
8:30 AM - 7:30 PM Book Fair
8:30 AM - 5:00 PM Book Fair
